Kevin was the perfect speaker for our audience of insurance agents at our Leaders Conference in Sorrento, Italy. He energized the crowd, captured our attention and motivated us with humor and anecdotes. He articulated a strategy for each individual to use their own talents to authentically "be quality," to build better client relationships and deliver exceptional service. We thoroughly enjoyed his presentation. Many of us are now practicing his concept of "you could be my teacher" in our business transactions. We recommend him highly
Working with Kevin was a pleasure. He delivered 3 excellent sessions at a recent Microsoft event to an audience of approx. 250 people which all scored extremely highly and compared to 5 other speakers delivering, was regarded by the audience as the best speaker. He captivated the delegates throughout the sessions with interactivity, energy and humour. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Kevin again
I met Kevin Kelly at the "WOM Latam Leadership Symposium" in Buenos Aires. We were invited as guest-podium-speakers to talk about Excellence of Management and the Challenges of Leadership. I would like to express my feelings when I listened to Mr. Kelly's speech/performance for the first time: If you want to join the next generation of business leaders, you have to meet or listen to Kevin Kelly. I feel he can deliver to any audience the real world of business because he is a thought leader for our time. He understands how to infuse into you immediately applicable management-practices - the kind you should follow to be a great leader. He has all the tools and experience to transform your career and business and to drive winning results.
"At WOM-Latam, we seek to give our audiences the opportunity of sharing real world experiences and ideas, and provide support to companies seeking to transcend their challenges and reach their goals. In this sense, I have to tell you that your session has been clear, dynamic, engaging and highly inspirational for all the attendees, both conceptually and in terms of practical solutions. Your excellent material contained information very relevant to our customers, with excellent examples and has been oriented at the right level for the audience. It has been a great pleasure working with you and I hope we can do it again in the near future."
"Thank you so much, the workshop exceeded my expectations! You really know how to motivate and engage an audience with your energy and enthusiasm. The session provided them with practical take-aways that they can put into action immediately."
Leadership Institute Planner, Project Management
"It was great to go through the review process driven by you in the talk. We oftentimes forget what we should be doing due to being immersed in our daily routine. I am very much inspired by your high energy, people sensitivity and drive to be Xceptionalized!"

"Kevin's keynote was very motivational and inspirational. I like the idea of pursuing your dream without over-analyzing the pros and cons."

"Kevin joined the Lane Crawford team for an informal breakfast session to share his thoughts on how to Xceptionalize Service. The feedback from the audience was overwhelmingly positive. He was engaging, entertaining and importantly gave some real takeaways that could be used immediately. Understanding customer’s DNA and accepting that “everyone can be your teacher” resonated particularly well with the teams. The queue for signed books at the end was testament to their desire to get more of Kevin Xceptional thinking!"
-Alison McLaughlin, L and D,
Lane Crawford -www.lanecrawford.com
"Thank you for an entertaining and content rich workshop. In addition to engaging our people......you delivered some valuable messages that resonated cross culturally in our marketplace."
" The seminar was incisive, thought provoking, participative and, best of all, very enjoyable".
"Kevin's got a capacity to tune into any audience with empathy, integrity and not a little humour."
"Having entered today as a sceptic, I must admit to having learned some very valuable things - both about myself and the effect my current lifestyle could be having on me. Thanks for a great insight - it genuinely was a privilege"
"Very good - logically developed - paced well - understood some excellent practical ideas, especially in relation to intuition. Good activity based programme."
"Stop your mind from controlling everything and filtering inputs from surroundings! I found the day fascinating - worried at the start but slowly relaxed."
From the minute he took the stage, motivational speaker Kevin Kelly held the audience captivated in the palm of his hand. His Irish background adds a truly unique slant. A Great Motivator."
"Positive thinking and self-empowerment are new buzz-words in the nineties. The difference with Kevin's seminar is that he links them to achieving core human values such as happiness and peace of mind instead of the "False God" of monetary success which other teachers seem to want people to aspire to."
The day provided the participants the opportunity, time, guidance and some tools to assess what is important to them and gave an interesting flavour of the possibilities of filling your life with things you love doing. The day was interactive, fun, informative and gave a lot of food for thought. There were many aspects that I will be using again and again. Thank you Kevin.
"Kevin has a warm, energetic and inclusive style of presenting. Allied to a careful understanding of his client's needs and ethos, he encourages, motivates and energises his audience to define real actions to be taken by each person and creates in them a desire to achieve them. He works at a pace appropriate to his audience, which adds greatly to both their commitment and enjoyment of the workshop. His understanding of things spiritual in realising human potential and his willingness to share openly from his own experiences in this regard is greatly appreciated and valued."
"The Mind Matters/Spirit Masters workshop is a fast paced, interactive and thought provoking session which empowers you to achieve both personal and business goals. Kevin’s energy is contagious."
"Kevin Kelly's keynote address set the tone for the 2004 NALA Adult Literacy Organisers Forum. Participant Evaluations noted his energy and challenging address as a highlight. The verve and variety of his delivery, the fundamental truth of his message and his capacity to impact on personal change and development made for one of the most interesting keynote addresses we have had at these fora."
"Kevin Kelly electrifies, informs and inspires. Imagine Tony Robbins and Riverdance all in one package. That's Kevin Kelly!"
'Kevin Kelly's delivery at Wexford County Childcare Childminders Conference was interactive, energetic, poignant and most enjoyable.'
"A gifted storyteller teaching universal wisdom with a unique Irish voice!!! Listen to him for a life of magic and adventure. Kevin will inspire you to trust life and to believe in yourself. Most importantly, he cares about you."
"On behalf of the children, staff and the entire Gatoto school community, we wish to thank you most sincerely for the visit you paid to our school last month. We are pleased to inform you that we felt honoured to have been visited by you. It's our sincere hope and prayer that your visit was the beginning of an emotional attachment to the school. We also thank you for the great training you offered to staff and children. The training will help visualize the school in the longer term and work towards actualising that vision. Together with the books A Trip Towards Trust and How? When You Don't Know How staff will achieve synergy that is important as the school prepares to scale new heights of growth."
"I couldn't but be inspired by a presentation that had a rather unique spiritual depth. Indeed by a presenter who shows true compassion for his fellow man. He truly cares."
"Kevin's interactive and energetic seminar was extremely thought provoking and, whilst at times alarming, most of all it was thoroughly enjoyed by all in the wide and varied audience"

His storytelling and exercises made the entrepreneurial thinking programme content compelling and memorable -I would highly recommend his motivational course and book for anyone interested in achieving work-life success".

-Jane Stephenson ,

"Attending Kevin’s motivational seminar pushes you to seize life's opportunity in the right moment. He is excellent speaker, motivator, and the most important - man with wide horizons. He offers much more than one can imagine and expect. If you are able to take what he offers and turn it to new goals, then you will be a winner. Thanks for your wisdom, Kevin."
"Staff from all levels of the company found the sessions with Kevin to be a great experience and quite unique. They were grateful for the chance to be involved in training which focused on life as a whole, not just on work. Well done!"
"I have seen Kevin perform at three very different events and I was struck by his effective communication. Unlike so many people he communicates very well in his own unique and passionate style. He has a message to tell and he wants his audience to benefit. When he is not ''on tour'' his website is a good place to visit for stimulation. A motivational speaker with a vision!
"A mixture of energy, entertainment and high content. Kevin's inspirational "timeless truths" were delivered with clarity and in a style that honours his Irish upbringing"
"Kevin Kelly is truly inspirational. He not only talks the talk but walks the walk and this has enhanced his creditability. Our staff, who have encountered him through our corporate programmes on Leadership and motivation have given him a 100% approval rating. He has always adapted his presentation to suit our particular needs - truly flexible, always relevant and ever optimistic."
"Too often speakers base their presentations on other people's experiences - Kevin has lived and breathed every bit of the journey he takes you on. That's what makes him stand out head and shoulders above every other speaker I have seen in the last 15 years. Yesterday Kevin's motivational keynote took 30 colleagues and me on a rollercoaster ride for three hours. Initially it was scary, then the adrenalin pumped through all our veins and when he eventually allowed us to loosen our grip we all walked away shattered but taking with us the experience of a lifetime. The energy with which he delivers is breathtaking - it's akin to Michael Schumacher on steroids!!" The seminar lasted three hours - the impact will be forever.
"The feedback to Kevin Kelly was very positive - most people in addition to have been entertained and informed, took some vignette or tool away from the talk that should have a positive impact on their work performance in the future."
"I really enjoyed your interactive and inspirational keynote at the PMI Leadership meeting in Budapest. Your energy and content was inspiring."
"Kevin is an inspiring and enthusiastic motivational speaker not to mention lively, entertaining and thought-provoking. His energy was transferred onto his audience as he engaged with them throughout. He encouraged self belief and instilled the importance of positive thinking. He certainly offered something different !"

"Your interactive and motivational style of speaking provoked lots of innovative and new thoughts in our audience and made our event a real great success,and unleashed the potential of our delegates, you were one of the most impressive speakers we have ever had in the past 5 years of our conferences"
-Sepehr Tarvedian CEO,
"Some speakers motivate and some have great content. Kevin Kelly has both which means he brings double the value to your conference. If you want a speaker who will inspire, motivate, educate, entertain and give a performance so powerful that the delegates will hardly dare blink for missing something then Kelly is your man." David Thomas, World Memory Champion, International speaker, and Sunday Times #1 Best Selling Author,
" We engaged Kevin to speak to our entire workforce a number of months prior to the business closing. We were looking for an alternative means to invigorate people and to instill a positive outlook in an inherently negative situation. Kevin Kelly delivered. His sessions focused on job searching, self-marketing and self belief. Feedback was universally positive and an exercise we were delighted to have delivered to our folks.".
"We had the Top 25 Executives from around the world here for the first time and we needed to set the tone for the meeting. Kevin did just that providing challenges and insights for each one of us and creating a positive and open interaction"

CEO Longford County Enterprise Board
My expectations for Kevin’s presentation were extremely high and even at that, he exceeded every hope I had when I invited him to speak to our retail sales team. I have never witnessed a room full of people hanging on one person’s words for such a length of time. Kevin has a true & rare talent and the feedback so far has been extremely positive and the team is most energetic. I am confident that even the most cynical and unmotivated person could not have helped but be inspired in some shape or form. Most enjoyable & beneficial, Go raibh mile maith agat.
"We invited Kevin to speak at one our senior management sessions to help us engage and focus on the year ahead. Kevin has to be one of the most enthusiastic professionals I have had the pleasure to work with. He excludes passion for his subject and has the ability to engage his audience from the moment he steps into the room, he also references some great life examples of how you can achieve your goals. There was no doubt everyone took something away from the session and it was a great success."
"Kevin Kelly spoke at our Thought Leaders Conference on 16th September 2010, an event hosted by Investec Bank. Kevin has rarely been heard in the UK but is very popular in many parts of the world. He is a motivation speaker par excellence and brings very practical value to our audience of CEO’s. ‘Basics before Buzz’ which was his subject, did exactly what was on the tin and I would recommend Kevin to any organisation that wishes to exceptionalise their service and retain their customers."

"We have two fantastic sessions with Kevin in Kerman city. His speeches were full of energy, information and inspiration. I wish to have more seminars with him in Iran soon.”
-Hossein Azimi ,
"We have used Kevin for five prestigious conferences in Iran in five different cities – the feedback has always been very positive – our people love Kevin’s energy and enthusiasm for his subject and the huge takeaway value he delivers in terms of key messages they can use the following day in their lives and businesses.”
-Hossein Taheri ,
Managing Director 128 Media ,Iran
“I do not like people who talk a lot. Even if it does not seem at first, Kevin Kelly can talk for quite some time. The difference is that his words carry special energy and exquisite meaning. Which is why I could listen to him for hours. I am very thankful to be reminded that small stories have value and do cause big stories in the end.”
Project Manager, Conventa
"I was inspired at the very beginning of the lecture by his style of delivery which I hadn't experienced before. The very first impression let me know that Mr. Kevin has a very positive personality and truly the lecture unfortunately passed very quickly. Some contents and techniques highlighted in the lecture were known to me, like I was already using them at work. But he gave them his own significance and I'll put more attention on them in the future. I would like to be present on more similar lectures."
-Primož Križnar ,
"We asked Kevin to handle the coveted spot closing out our MDRT Experience meeting in Seoul, Korea this year. Kevin gave the audience an abundance of energy, enthusiasm and practical take-away messaging that our members can immediately apply to their lives. I would definitely urge any organization to consider utilizing Kevin Kelly on their program."
"Polished speaker, great audience control, great content - 'exceptional execution of ordinary ideas' is a great core message."
"I must admit I was pleasantly surprised as I sometimes feel other speakers use the same type of material that others have used before. This was not the case with your session. The material and exercises used for me were useful, had a high impact and could at a practical level be used and reflected upon. I felt the energy from both yourself and the group was great which meant that the half day flew by. I especially liked the Personal Audit which allowed me to reflect on the things/people that impact on my actions."
"Kevin's seminar reinforced the importance of looking after customers and how vital customer retention is. His practical examples of how to achieve excellence demonstrated that we all have the potential to excel and be top in our chosen fields. His informal, irreverent style kept everyone engaged. In short, the day was both informative and enjoyable, everything training should be"
"Sometimes it is very useful to take a step back to see the wood from the trees. Attending Kevin Kellys seminar did just that. From a personal to a business audit, barriers were identified but more importantly solutions were discovered. I came away with plenty of ideas including the need to change our core message to accurately communicate what we were all about. Interactive, engaging and informative"

"Kevin's program delivered practical, usable approaches & assertions for real customer engagement to ensure customer satisfaction and future business development"
"If you’re a business owner then you need to hear what Kevin has to say. There is plenty of business to be done but you need to go out and grab your share. Kevin’s seminar gives a wonderful insight about how to be heard above all the noise and interruption in the modern world, how to connect with people but more importantly, how to close that deal"
